PATTERN DETAILS

The Trixie Cowl has a few tricks up her sleeve...Well not really, but by combining different textures and even different yarns, it is like you are wearing two different cowls. The cowl is loosely knit on the bias and has sturdy I-cord edges, so it will naturally fold in half, neatly aligning each of the I-cord edges. Have fun with this one. Make one in a single bold yarn or mix it up a bit by combining two different colors or a variegated yarn. Don't let the provisional cast on or Kitchener stitch scare you. You can easily skip these by casting on and binding off very loosely, then seaming together. Your seam will be hidden in the natural fold of the cowl. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit, purl, increase, decrease, attached i-cord, provisional cast on, kitchener stitch GAUGE Fingering weight scarf - 16 stitches/26 rows in 4" stockinette. Worsted weight scarf - 15 stitches/20 rows in 4" stockinette. Gauge isn't too important for this project. You will want to use a needle size that is 3 to 4 sizes larger than what is suggested for the yarn you are using. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Fingering weight scarf - 60" circumference x 7" wide. Worsted weight scarf - 68" circumference x 8" wide.

After spending 15 years in the fashion industry as a pattern maker and technical designer, in 2008, I decided to leave the corporate world behind to pursue more creative opportunities. I have gotten to hone my couture dressmaking skills by making quite a few wedding dresses. Discovered that I can write, by having a few published magazine articles and was able to do all the technical writing, illustrating and pattern making for two books(Girl’s World and Happy Home, both by Jennifer Paganelli. Check them out). I was also very fortunate to be able to work in a local yarn and fabric store, which showed me what a varied and inviting community the craft world can be. My next adventure is to expand on my independently published line of pattern for knitting, crochet and sewing.
